Action needed: Ask your senators to vote “YES” on H.R. 3076

The Postal Service Reform Act (H.R. 3076) passed in the House of Representatives with 342 bipartisan votes. Now, NALC is asking all letter carriers to contact their senators and ask them to vote “yes” on this important legislation.

NALC thanks every letter carrier who lobbied their representatives to win House passage. We are calling on NALC members to finish the job by contacting their senators to urge them to vote for H.R. 3076.

Information on H.R. 3076

H.R. 3076 is a bipartisan bill that will bring financial stability to the Postal Service. It includes key provisions for letter carriers, including eliminating the mandate that requires the Postal Service to pre-fund its retiree health care benefits decades in advance and codifying six-day mail delivery. It also integrates future postal annuitants into Medicare.
